English as a Second Language (ESL)
English as a Second Language (ESL) programs provide international students with the opportunity to learn English or improve their language skills in English. ESL comprises four areas of teaching such as (i) Reading, (ii) Writing, (iii) Listening and (iv) Speaking. Almost every Canadian school in North America now welcomes students who speak over 100 different languages. Such examples are several Aboriginal languages, many African, Asian, and European languages, or an English-related creole language (such as Caribbean Creole or West African Krio). This increasing linguistic and cultural diversity provides students with many opportunities for cultural enrichment and for learning that is global in scope. However, this diversity brings a significant and growing proportion of students who come as English language learners in the English-language schools. Our ESL program opens a door for the students who are interested in getting admissions in different schools in North America, Australia, UK, Europe and many other countries. These students will learn the language of instruction i.e., English. The curriculum in English as an ESL program has been developed to ensure that English language learners have the maximum opportunity to become proficient in English and achieve the high levels of literacy that are expected of all students. The goals of the ESL curriculum is to (i) train the students in a broad proficiency in English that is essential to students’ success in both their social and academic lives, (ii) foster their capability to take their place in society as responsible and productive citizens and (iii) provide with the knowledge and skills an English language learner needs.
